The Colorado Rockies are one of the newest MLB franchises, having been in the league since 1993. They have never won a World Series and only have a solitary National League Pennant to their name, which they won in 2007. They’ve never won the West Division but despite this comparative lack of title-winning success have enjoyed three Wild Card berths, in 1995, 2007 and 2009. Owned by the Monfort Brothers, they played their home league games at the Mile High Stadium for two seasons before moving to Coors Field.
The Rockies have reached the postseason three times, all of which as a Wild Card team. On two occasions, they were knocked out in the first round. In 2007, however, they made it all the way to the World Series.
With a record of 76-72 on September 16th, The Rockies won 14 of their final 15 regular season games, one of the greatest stretch runs in Major League Baseball history. The standout game in that stretch was a thrilling 9-8 victory over the San Diego Padres. The Rockies swept the first two playoff series in 2007 on route to their one and only National League Pennant.
They were swept by the Boston Red Sox in the World Series. The Rockies were the first team in MLB history to have been swept in a World Series after winning the NL Championship in four games.
